The Youth Fashion Summit 2018-2019 programme is a partnership with the United Nations Global Compact that takes form as a two-year student programme, which sets out to challenge the 100 most talented students in the fashion industry to create a framework for the industry on how to reach two of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), namely SDG 3 and SDG 5.
The two-year sustainability programme is put together by the United Nations Global Compact in collaboration with the Global Fashion Agenda and Copenhagen School of Design and Technology and challenge the students to specifically dive into SDG 3, ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, and SDG 5, achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. The extracurricular programme is organised around webinars providing the students with different approaches, tools, as well as practical examples, and all participants will receive reading lists and preliminary assignments.
